Shocker that the Redskins were shut out of their first preseason game of the 2009-2010 season, 23-0, just a shocker. I mean, when you have one of the most unproductive offenses last season and just pray that the players you have get better…well this is what you’re going to get. I’m not even discussing the offensive line, which surprisingly played adequately, I’m talking about the skill positions.
No Clinton Portis meant the Redskins had to hope that Ladell Betts looked like the betts of 2 seasons ago. The Redskins had to hope that Rock Cartwright could start to be anything else than a mediocre kick returner and look like an actual running back. They had to hope that, with Santana Moss sitting this one out, one of their 2nd round draft picks would step up to the plate and play up to their draft position. They had to hope that Antwan Randle-El could be something more than a nice guy and a #3 receiver…or at the very least he could be productive in the slot. Finally, they had to hope that one of the veteran receivers and inexperienced running backs they signed could make a big play and prove they belong on an NFL roster.
Not at all surprising but, none of that happened. The timing was off between receivers and the QB. The running backs were unproductive carrying the ball. Receivers couldn’t get themselves open and when they did, they couldn’t hold on to the ball. Is this what happens when you stubbornly pray the decisions you make work out better than previous evidence suggests instead of facing the reality that you have no idea what you’re doing and you need to get some help in? Who knows…but lets hope so.
Yes, I know, it is too early to cast a final grade on how the Redskins will look this upcoming season, but all the problems that existed last season existed in this game, minus the broken down offensive line…and that is not good that all the same problems are happening with a healthy and productive line instead of what they had in the 2nd half of last season. Hail to the Redskins? More like, Hail to the Redskins Defense…they might be the only hope this team has.
Coach Snoop the Great “stay ready so he don’t got to get ready”. Check out Snoop’s presser from Ravens training camp.
Fo sheezy my neezy indeed. The Browns will probably respond by bringing in Soulja Boy to support Coach Mangina. They need another soldier to replace Kellen Winslow who’s off to a great start in Tampa. Expect more fail.
Because we’re not above posting this stuff, here is Steve McNair murderer Sahel Kazemi’s DUI arrest that occurred a week before the slaying of the former NFL star. Nothing more to say really, watch it if you’re interested in this wack-job.
Were you disappointed in how Ray Lewis handled himself this offseason in regard to talking about other teams?
Bisciotti: No. It humored me.
How did it humor you?
Bisciotti: We already had an understanding of what he was doing. I wanted Ray to explore his options. So, when he came back, he was 100 percent comfortable that Ozzie had given him a legitimate contract. It didn’t bother me at all because Ray is one of the great self-marketers. I think he’s a brilliant guy. I would have been disappointed had he not done the best to try and generate interest from other teams. I was just amused.
Aw hell naw is right. In the words of the president himself, “It’s an outrage!” Supporting the Steelers doesn’t not inspire hope and change. Doesn’t Obama know that the Cardinals have Jesus on their side because Kurt Warner says so? If you say that I’m not pleased about this because I hate the Steelers, you would be correct. I am a non-purple camo pants wearing Ravens fan. However I despise them more because they played with our patron saint Najeh Trenadious Monté Davenport’s emotions by constantly cutting and resigning him. That’s some cold shit right there. Dookie should be tearing it up Ybor City with Chris Berman this week. I don’t know what it’s like to root for the Cardinals. No one does except Will Leitch and Neil Lomax’s mom. Maybe David Boston. However I’m going to see how it goes on Sunday.
Here’s hoping Hines Ward or Willie Parker get caught with a mercenary hooker from Reno a day before the game. If the Cardinals win, they should present a jersey to Vice-President Biden unless Obama makes him back the Steelers too. Wait he’s from Scranton. There’s always Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. DHS probably has a broom closet or handicapped bathroom stall they could use for the ceremony.
Stupid Ravens. Only if they still had Stoney Case or Elvis Grbac.
